Hello,

I went on a chocolate course about 5 years ago and was shown how to pipe chocolate very finely by using a piece of greaseproof paper and rolling it up. I've tried doing it recently and the result was an original piece of origami but not of much use in the kitchen. I'm sure someone can direct me to a website where there are simple instructions and diagrams to produce a paper piping bag. Also, does anyone sell these small piping bags ? I bought a roll of Matfer plastic piping bags (about 18 inches long) a few years ago for piping ganache for truffles but they were useless as they kept splitting along the seam.

Many thanks

Sure, plenty of places sell them. I usually get mine from chefrubber.com, but you'll find piping bags - disposable and reusable - all over the place. I tend to prefer the small disposable ones. Curiously, I saw some at Walmart t'other night even. To make your own, i'd simply use a sheet of wax paper, make a closed funnel out of it (at the bottom, pointy end), fill it, fold the top over to seal the top, and cut a small amount off of the 'pointy' end to discharge it. I'd also probably tape the seams shut.

Actually, I'd just buy them 8-)
